Laura Krukowski joins Dream Team real estate team

Margaretville — Peggy Bellar and Meade Camp, of the Catskill Dream Team, have named Laura Krukowski an associate broker with the team at RealtyUSA.

Citing her multi-year experience in land sales and the rapidly changing real estate market in the region, Bellar and Camp said Krukowski is a great addition to their team and its strategy of combining the best in old-fashioned service with the latest in digital technology and online media.

Krukowski, who has lived in Delaware County since 1994, says there is “no fancy story to tell. There is no jet-setting lifestyle or extensive tale about how she became a Catskills lifer.” Raised in Queens, the native New Yorker tired of city life. Eager to pursue an innate connection to animals, nature, and skiing, the “gypsy-hearted” Krukowski moved to Colorado. But when a desire to join a veterinary science program tugged at her, the program at SUNY Delhi served as a magnet pulling her back to the east coast.

The rest, as they say, is history. “An old, creaky farmhouse, a secluded parcel of land, a commute to work with no traffic, friendly communities, a cold stream on a hot summer day….” Krukowski waxes poetic of what now holds her in upstate New York. The things she loves, from “finding medicinal herbs in the meadows and all the eccentricities the area has to offer, from belly dancing to antiquing,” are the same sorts of things she shares with newcomers to the area.

Shifting interests from vet work to real estate, Krukowski became a land consultant, traveling all over upstate New York selling rural properties. Today, she and her husband enjoy a simple life with their dog, cat, and flock of hens. And, with the Catskill Dream Team, she looks forward to helping others realize their dreams in the region.
